Life on the road in 2010 – Week 3

The purpose of this series of posting is to summarise my week on the bike and exercising in general etc.  My week runs from Thursday to Friday, so Week 3 for me in 2010 is from January 15, 2010 through to January 21, 2010.




Friday, January 15 None As I had a hills ride planned for Saturday morning, drove to Fremantle with the bike.
Saturday, January 16 No riding but did walk from the City to Churchlands. Alarm went off at 5:00 AM and I rolled over and went back to sleep. End result missed the planed ride in the hills. Not happy.
Only exercise ended up being a walk from the City … short story best left untold.
Sunday, January 17 21 km on the bike Short commute to Fremantle enjoying the morning tailwind.
Monday January 18 73 km on the bike Pretty standard Fremantle – Joondalup – Churchlands commute. Hot and windy coming home.
Tuesday January 19 73 km on the bike Reverse of Monday – Churchlands – Joondalup – Fremantle. Moderate headwinds heading south, but boy a lot of aggression on the road. Maybe no one got a good nights sleep due to the heat.
Wednesday January 20 74 km on the bike Back to Joondalup then on to Churchlands in the afternoon. Full on sea breeze for the ride home.
Thursday January 21 60 km on the bike. Nice ride to Joondalup in the morning; varied the ride home taking the path instead of the road down the coast. At least some variety in the scenery, if not the wind!
Totals for the Week Total Bike Kilometres:301.49 km for the week;
1,153.94 km for the year.


100.3 kg; Gained 100 grams this week;
Total weight loss for 2010: 2.7 kg.

BikeJournal Rankings:

  • Australian Cycling Forums Club – 7th (down from 3rd last week).
  • BikeJournal overall ranking – 36th (down from 23rd position last week) out of 2791 riders.
Quiet week on the bike, shortened my less than ideal weekend. All this resulted in me being punished in the Bike Journal rankings.

On the weight front, I started the year in a less than healthy position at 103 kg and I ended the week at 100.3 kg, so not a great week. Tried pretty hard too, but suspect my old pattern of a good week – bad week is back.  My target for the month end is 95 kg, so still 5.2 kg to go.
